why boober

Boober matches birth doulas to all types of families, from first-time moms to parents welcoming their second or third child to A-list celebrities requiring the utmost discretion.  We began matching doulas at our sister company Birth Day Presence--the premier provider of smart, non-judgmental childbirth education, doula and lactation trainings for savvy New Yorkers since 2002. We have matched thousands of NYC expectant parents and doulas! The doulas on the boober platform are often trained in the doula training workshop taught by world-renowned doula trainer, Debra Pascali-Bonaro and hosted at our Park Slope Studio; many of the experienced doulas are certified through DONA International (newer doulas may be working toward their certification) or Doula Trainings InternationalThe doulas who list themselves on the boober platform will often have advanced training/licensure in complementary fields such as lactation, childbirth education, prenatal yoga, massage therapy, reiki, nutrition, and counseling.

I was lucky to have been connected with Didi through Birth Day Presence. My husband and I took the weekend intensive class on childbirth education there, as well as the breastfeeding/newborn class. So the classes really helped us have a better understanding of what to expect. However, after the classes and speaking with several friends, they all highly recommended having a doula present during labor. I wanted someone who was experienced in childbirth, nurturing, and in-line with my requests. And Didi was exactly the right person for the job. I interviewed several other doula’s but after meeting Didi, both my husband and I felt immediately comfortable with her. She was absolutely wonderful and sweet, and I know that she was a huge reason why my birthing experience was so unbelievable. I couldn’t have asked for a better birth.

Thank you to Jada, my Kangaroula, who supported me not only through a very long labor, but helped us and my son tremendously in the Nicu. She was there for early breastfeeding sessions and helped me advocate for more skin-to-skin time, even though my baby was connected by tubes and monitors.
